Name Days

(E1)(L1) http://www.behindthename.com/namedays.html
In many cultures there are first names associated with the days of the year. The associations between the days and the names have arisen through many reasons, but primarily because the church held a festival for a saint of that name on that day. For instance, the church feast of Saint Michael was held on September 29th, and as a result the name day for Michael is on September 29th. In some countries one's nameday is more important than one's birthday, and sometimes gifts are given.

Word Bursts are heightened usage of certain words in weblogs within the last couple days. They are indicators of what webloggers are writing about right now, in contrast to Top 40 and Top News which are indicators of what webloggers are linking to currently. Word Bursts can frequently indicate current events of interest that are not usually accompanied by links. Sample weblog posts accompany each word burst.

"Word Burst" - A rapid rise in both the frequency with which a word is used in a particular context, and the rate at which the word's usage increases over time.

Example Citation:

At a recent conference, Professor Kleinberg conjectured that word bursts could be used to track what people were discussing in personal Weblogs. Daypop, a search engine focused on news sites and Weblogs, quickly added a list of top word bursts. By comparing this list with Daypop's Top 40 links, one finds topics that are popular but may not depend on a link to a specific site. For example, news articles about the recent suicide of the French chef Bernard Loiseau did not make the list of top links, but his death was a high-ranking topic on the burst list.
—Pamela LiCalzi O'Connell, "Online diary," The New York Times, March 13, 2003

The Visual Thesaurus is an interactive dictionary and thesaurus with an innovative display that encourages exploration and learning. You'll understand language in an exciting new way. To understand the power of the Visual Thesaurus, you really need to see it in action. Type in your favorite word and give it a try!

Say you have a meaning in mind, like "happy." The VT helps you find related words, from "cheerful" to "euphoric." The best part is the VT works like your brain, not a paper-bound book. You'll want to explore just to see what might happen. You'll discover - and learn - naturally and intuitively. You'll find the right word, write more descriptively, free associate - and gain a more precise understanding of the English language.

Begriffe und Abkόrzungen aus der Welt von Computer und Internet


Tδglich verschickt Webopedia einen Newsletter mit dem "Term of the Day" - eine (englische) Beschreibung eines Begriffs aus dem Bereich Internet und Computerei.
Die Beschreibungen enthalten keine Hinweise zur Etymologie.Allerdings kann man aus der Beschreibung oft die Wortgeschichte dahinter Ableiten (Stichwφrter: Neologismen, Abkόrzungen, Kunstworte, und gelegentlich auch Patronyme).
Und die meisten Begriffe sind mφglicherweise erst im Zusammenhang mit dem Internet entstanden und kφnnen somit als "Neologismen" doch im weitesten Sinne unter den Aspekt Etymologie fallen.

Pronounced "see-sharp." A hybrid of C and C++, it is a Microsoft programming language developed to compete with Sun's Java language. C# is an object-oriented programming language used with XML-based Web services on the .NET platform and designed for improving productivity in the development of Web applications. C# boasts type-safety, garbage collection, simplified type declarations, versioning and scalability support, and other features that make developing solutions faster and easier, especially for COM+ and Web services. Microsoft critics have pointed to the similarities between C# and Java.
